Meeting Description:

This workshop will include original research on any aspect of speech errors
(a.k.a. slips of the tongue, including slips of the hand in signed languages).
The workshop will emphasize research that has ramifications for models of
language production or theories of linguistic competence (or both). Of special
interest are studies incorporating brain measures or computational approaches,
and work that addresses the efficacy of research methods that have been or could
be applied to speech error research. Specifically encouraged are submissions
that deal with languages other than English or that involve cross-linguistic
comparisons. Also particularly welcome is work on the speech of populations with
neurological impairments.

For a detailed description of the goals of the workshop, see
http://web.mit.edu/lsa2005/events/schutze_ferreira.html

Presentations are planned to consist of both posters and talks (20 minutes + 10
minute question period). All submissions will be considered for both kinds of
presentation unless the submitter indicates otherwise.

Abstracts must be submitted via email as PDF files. Format restrictions are as
follows:

- The PDF file should be anonymous. If you know how, please remove all info
about you and your institution from the Document Properties.

- Please supply complete contact information (mail, phone and email) for all
authors in the body of the email message

- The main text can be maximally one page (8.5x11 or A4) with 1-inch margins and
minimum 11-point typeface

- A second page may contain only examples, tables, figures and references.


Please email abstracts by April 11, 2005 to slipspsy.ucsd.edu

Note on travel support: We have applied to NSF for a conference grant that
